Parker leaves Blackman to captain Rocket baseball (05/22/12)
In the end, it was about returning to the country for Chris Parker, who was introduced as the new Forrest baseball coach on Monday.
Parker takes over for Babe Hardison, who retired after 26 years at the helm of the Rockets.
"I grew up about five miles down the road, I think I am a country guy and there is a time to come back to the country," said Parker. "And I don't think you could find any better people to work for than Danny Morgan and Scott Delk."
